Stonehenge and Fashion and Drinks in Salisbury

rain 15 °C

Yesterday morning I got up and got on the bus for the Stonehenge tour. Stonehenge was built over 4000 years ago, but that's pretty much the only thing cool about it. It really is a bunch of rocks just hanging out in a field, but I had to go see it. Actually, whats really crazy is that these huge rocks were brought over almost 5000 years ago from Wales, so how they did that must've been pretty amazing. Other than that, nobody really knows what it was used for, and it was just some big rocks standing up. But, when in England, go see Stonehenge!
After retourning to Bath I walked up to the Circus and the Crescent, where all the houses are georgian style, and really old, and really, really expensive. I think a home in the Crescent costs upwards of 4 million pounds or something? Unreal. I thought that they would be these amazing, hug houses, but they were all together?! Like I wasn't expecting that. I passed by Jane Austin's house as well, but didn't go in.
Then I made my way over to the Fashion Museum. It was so cool! They had a Supremes exhibit, so it showed a ton of the original dresses that the girl group wore back in the 60's. They were amazing; so well done, so intricate, SO many sequins and plastic scales and beads. It was crazy to see. Then I went into the actual fashion museum, and it went through fashion, both men's and women's, from the early 1800's to the present day. They had amazing, original dresses that the Queen used to wear way back when! Very well done. It also has old swimsuits and corsets and shoes and bags and stuff, really neat to see.

Yesterday night I hopped the train over to Salisbury and met with Dan, a guy I know who was visiting Revelstoke last year. Was incredibly good to see someone who was like, "Hey Kelsey, how's it going?" I didn't know it would feel so good to recognize someone! Actually he was driving his little car and called me over, I hardly did recognize him! We drove into Salisbury and it was so weird. Anyone who knows me knows I'm the worst passenger driver anyways, and on top of that they drive on the other side of the road and I haven't been in a car for a month, so I freaked out a little. It kept feeling like he would run into things or that we would bottom out in his little car lol, but we got there safe and sound with minimal comments from me. Crazy! We parked and found a pub and got a drink and chatted for a couple of hours before I had to get the last train back. Was a GREAT visit!

Now I'm hanging out before I get my train to London! Super excited :)
